My interests broadly include Algebraic Combinatorics, Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry, and Combinatorial Representation Theory. More specifically, I study matroids and their Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials. I spend most of my time thinking about the Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials of graphical matroids. I am also interested in studying questions concerning real-rootedness of polynomials that come up in my research.

My advisor is Nick Proudfoot. You can find me on the arXiv. Here's my CV.

I often use SageMath (commonly referred to as sage) for my research. Here you can find a number of wonderful reference sheets for SageMath.
